I love playing Mario Party for the Nintendo 3DS, it is fun and quick, ten times better then Mario Party for the regular Nintendo DS, that version I didn't really like.

Worse MP ever. Why can't they make classic MP like before?
This is one has s***ty maps, slow paced gameplay, stupid single player and no items.

The minigames are okay.

Since MP 7, it's only been going bad to worse for MP. Even the GBA was better than this one

Boards are too tiny to enjoy. Nov. 23 2013
By Christian Stella - Published on
I am disappointed that I bought this as a download from the eshop, as after only one night, I would probably sell the game if possible. The last Wii game had no change in game rules from board to board, so I was glad to hear that this game would feature 7 boards, each with its own rules. First off, unless you have plenty of friends with a 3DS, consider this to have 6 boards, as the 7th requires at least 3 human players. My wife and I played through 5 of the 6 we could play, then she said she won't play it again, just 2 hours after I bought it. We used to play the old games for weeks! The rules for the boards ARE varied and generally good, however no board has classic Mario Party rules. You won't be collecting coins and stars and there are no bonus stars at the end of the round. These boards are mostly about getting to the finish line first, that's it. Obstacles and how you get there change, BUT the game has been shortened for handheld play to the point that it all seems more pointless than ever. These are boards with 20 spaces that can be beaten in 4-5 turns! When you add in the luck-factor of these games, the short boards ruin everything. Somebody rolls a 6 on turn 1 and they're 1/3 of the way to having won! One board is hilarious as it has you collecting "boosters" to multiply your dice roll. 3 turns in you play a mini game to win 3 boosters. I won, used the 3 boosters and immediately won the board. Whichever player had won that very first mini game would have won the board that turn without question. Only 1 of the 5 boards we played had any length to it at all, but we knew who the winner was well before the game was over. That was an issue with all boards, with no bonus stars, the winner was clear before they even crossed the finish line. It's very strange, as the rules are mostly unique and there are tons of mini-games that are of the same quality as past games in the series... It is only the length of the boards that kill the game. There is no concept of "catching up" as the game is over in 5 turns. You can however randomly shuffle players on the last turn and have someone instantly win with no effort. I am very confused why Nintendo couldn't just offer a short and long version of each board. All of the work they put into the game and it would seem like the easiest thing they could do was add 30 spaces to each board and let you choose between 20 spaces for a quick game or 50 spaces for a REAL game. Even if they used the same boards as is and let you choose the number of "laps" you had to make around those boards before it was over. That's a simple fix that would satisfy everyone! For now, the game is like choosing to flip a coin on game night because Monopoly is too long.

Short, unsatisfying, and ultimately disappointing. April 15 2014
By Arcade - Published on
I'm a pretty big fan of Mario Party. I own every game in the series, and this is easily the worst one. It's such a shame. The 3DS is easily one of my favorite consoles of all time, so I had pretty high hopes for this installment, but their attempt to reinvent the series in the last couple of iterations is saddening.

Here are my main complaints:

- Nontraditional, linear boards: They did away with the classic coins-and-stars gameplay entirely in favor of gimmicks like races and card-based games.
- Short boards: They vary in length, but there's at least one you can win in three turns.
- Overly luck-based: I know, it's Mario Party -- luck is always an element. But there is WAY too much reliance on luck in this installment, for boards and minigames alike. Even some minigames that seem skill-based are more luck-reliant (I'm citing the minigame Stretch Run here -- the strength of the rubber band changes each time you play). Strategy in boards is either nonexistent or ultimately futile because mostly everything can be foiled by a single dice roll gone wrong.
- Lame incentive: You get points for playing boards, but pretty much all you can buy with them are, like, sound tests for these characters you've heard in six hundred other games. Yippee.

But there are some redeeming qualities:

+ Not all the minigames are bad: Some of them, like Color Me Fast, are excellent.
+ Pretty: The game has the beautiful Nintendo polish you would expect.
+ Download play: I suspect the download play multiplayer would be good if the game wasn't so lame. (You can play with up to 3 other players, and they don't even need to own the game, just their own 3DS to play it on.)

All in all, I'd sit this one out. There are so many great games for the 3DS, and so many great Mario Party games. This is neither.

worst mario party game ever Dec 3 2013
By Sakura Uchiha - Published on
i am a huge fan of all mario party games for any platform, whether ds, wii, or game cube. i had high hopes for this game since it is for the new 3DS and i thought that it would blow all the other mario party games away. It did not. In fact, it fell behind as one of the worst mario party games i have ever played. The normal DS game for Mario Party is 10X better than this one. The only thing good about it is the 3D modes. You can not play all of the game boards, namely the last one where you need to have 3-4 actual players and not COMs. The boardgames last no more than 30-40 minutes and go by faster than a mario kart race on rainbow road. Most of the games are the same as past generation minigames, but with a litle twist, but too little to actually enjoy. Some minigames require the movement of the DS itself, and that is where the annoyance kicks in. The balance usually always go off and you end up turning your whole body in circles to move your screen to the right direction. there are less character choices in this game than the last, and there is no plot. You have to deal with tutorials all through out the game, and the minigames are short as well. I am very sad about this game and disappointed in the makings of it. i hope this helps you decide whether or not you buy this or not. My advice, if you want a better mario party, choose mario party DS for regular DS.

A good game, but don't go rushing to get it Dec 9 2013
By Jack Ryan - Published on
I'm a person who has a 3DS but not a home console, and who also loves the Mario Party series. I really enjoyed Mario Party DS, so I was excited when I saw this was coming out.

Mario Party is one of the series that Nintendo is experimenting with to keep the formula fresh. No longer are players earning coins and chasing after stars. Mario Party 3DS instead has players competing for dice and items that help them to move along, much like the recent Wii Party (U) games. All of the boards are uni-directional, meaning that once you reach the finish line, the game is over.

An addition I really appreciated is that each board is rated in terms of luck, skill, and rough amount time needed to complete it. Compared to Mario Part 9 for the wii, I think that the boards are generally more skill rather than luck, although the giant swings in luck can be infuriating. In regards to the minigames, the meat of any Mario Party, the selection is pretty limited, but there is a good amount of variety. So, both the minigames and boards can get old pretty quickly, especially with how quick some are.

Overall, the game is very polished and fun, but didn't keep me wanting to come back after I had tried everything. They did add a single player mode where you play through Bowser's Tower, but you have to start on the lowest difficulty setting. The difficulty then increases each time you play it. It takes a long time (thanks goodness for the fast-forward button!) but seems to be there just to extend play time. I haven't gotten a chance to play with other humans yet, so maybe that'll give the game a second life.

Bottom line is to wait for the price to drop or get a used version. It's certainly not a bad addition, but it's not worth the full price.

Roll Of The Dice Nov. 22 2013
By Michael Kerner - Published on

There is no question that Mario Party has been one of the guiltiest pleasures Nintendo has ever came out for their systems all the way back to the 90's. It has been a class act with gameplay, fun and characters that everyone loves from Mario and Luigi and Toad, as gamers race across boards trying t master challenges and compete against the simplest of games.The games have done well for Nintendo's home consoles over the years, the Wii, NIntendo 64 and Nintendo Gamecube, with bridging and interactive fun with others in board games that are absolutely fun and challenging. But, the feeling couldn't be said for the handheld systems. They have been heavily overlooked for the NIntendo DS, and Game Boy Advance through the years, and people never gave it the drive to succeed. Now, a new party has finally reached the Nintendo 3DS, and the question is that is it worth it for this party? The answer is yes with the roll of the dice.

Mario Party: Island Tour takes in on the fun as you play with as many as 3 other friends through 7 different game boards, and a whole lot of fun in the game. The game takes on the fun that works well just like the classic Mario fun as you play with Mario, Yoshi, Luigi and Boo among others. There are many great games for you to play where you can test the fun of the NIntendo 3DS action from goomba wrangling to slot car racing. There are 80 great mini-games to play and each one is fun with others well. There are also great game boards to play on from scaling Banzai Bill's Mountain, to going through a road to the finish on the stars in the Rocket Road, all the way up to scaling Bowser's tower of fury as you try and get to face him through a fierce showdown. The game plays nicely on the 3DS with good graphics, but doesn't have as well-rendered graphics on the 3D effect. It works well in fun on the Nintendo 2DS too. The control works well on the stylus, but the tilt controls on some games takes a bit of practice to get used to on some games, but can easily be mastered with time. The multiplayer works nicely with others, but could've had a bit more challenge as it could've included online gameplay through Wi-Fi, but that hasn't happened yet.

All in all, what you have gotten with Mario Party over the past 2 decades of games from Nintendo, you absolutely have definitely captured fun. While the games have had a lot of highs, and some strong lows, it has always a great centerpiece with interactive board game fun. There have been knockoffs that failed, but Mario still reigns supreme in on the fun. I absolutely recommend Mario Party: Island Tour not only because it is a good game with others, there has been a real lack of great games fr the Nintendo 3DS this past year, but this works well with others. This island hopping will work well for your Nintendo 3DS library.
